We began filming our latest documentary with artist and photographer Sarah Sudhoff in late July. We traveled with Sarah to document her work on At the Hour of Our Death, a project that captures scenes where death has occurred.

A except from Sarah’s artist statement that describes the process we documented:

The fabrics which are first removed by a trauma scene clean up crew, are relocated to a warehouse before being incinerated. It is in the warehouse that I photograph these fragments stained with bodily fluids. I tack each swatch to the wall and use the crew’s floodlights to illuminate the scene.
